There has been some discussion recently about the way medals are counted at the Olympics. Do we only count gold or total medals?
Well, I have the best way and it shows the US is far above anyone else. And, thanks to the NBC site, I have the data.
The real measure should be how many individuals walk away from the Olympics with a medal. Not how many events were won. we should applaud the people who got a medal after all that hard work.
So, if you go to the total medals for the US and for China, you can see the individuals who won a medal and what color it was. Putting this into an Excel spreadsheet, I could do a little data mining.
We just do so much better in the team sports. So let’s count all of the medals, not just enumerate the events.
